Ayam Brand has been providing the great taste and health benefits of coconut milk, in convenient packs for decades. Ayam Brand Coconut Milk is hygienically squeezed from selected ripe coconuts, then sealed in convenient tetra packs using Ultra High Temperature (UHT) technology.  It is as good as squeezing by hand but without the hassle of cleaning up after.

You can use Ayam Brand Santan, Ayam Brand Santan Trim (45% reduced in fat) or Ayam Brand Santan Super Light (only 5% of fat!) depending on your preference.

Bubur Pulut Hitam]

Bubur Pulut Hitam or black glutinous rice porridge is a hearty, healthy and surprisingly easy to prepare treat. Make it at home to have just the right amount of creamy santan for your taste.

Method 

Cook the black glutinous rice, pandan leaves and water in low heat with the lid on. Simmer for an hour or until the rice has softened. Simultaneously heat the coconut milk, salth and sugar to taste.  To serve, scoop the lusciously gooey rice into a bowl and add the coconut milk mixture.

Quick tips:

If you have a pressure cooker, the time for this recipe can be reduced significantly. You can also heat the coconut milk mixture in the microwave instead of on the stove. We try to use all kitchen appliances, too! Make a double batch that can be refrigerated and heated for another day’s buka puasa or Sahur.
